    i know of cucapa and mikkeller now, but im really interested in this concept, being i love tequilla.
    and i mean stuff distributed to california and easily accesible, i know can look it up, but ill get a lot of limited brewed and limited access results

    edit: tequilla, for all you spelling freaks

    Great question! I've only had Mikkellers and I loved it. Plus, Cinco de Mayo is coming up...

    Le Pétomane ([​IMG] /ləˈpɛtəmn/, French pronunciation: [ləpetɔˈman]) was the stage name of the French flatulist (professional farter) and entertainer Joseph Pujol (June 1, 1857–1945). He was famous for his remarkable control of the abdominal muscles, which enabled him to seem to fart at will. His stage name combines the French verb péter, "to fart" with the -mane, "-maniac" suffix, which translates to "fartomaniac". The profession is also referred to as "flatulist", "farteur", or "fartiste".[1]
    It is a common misconception that Joseph Pujol actually passed intestinal gas as part of his stage performance. Rather, Pujol was able to "inhale" or move air into his rectum and then control the release of that air with his anal sphincter muscles. Evidence of his ability to control those muscles was seen in the early accounts of demonstrations of his abilities to fellow soldiers.

    The BA Black Holes were all over the place here a few months ago, I still seem some randomly. If you go to a few stores that don't move stuff quite as quickly, you might be able to just buy one.

    Cigar City just put out their El Murciélago double cream ale with lime and cumin aged in tequila barrels.

    It's available enough (brewery release but not super limited) that you probably could trade for it with some Cali stuff.

    That shit isn't very good, its just hard to find.

    OP, El murcielago from CCB is a Double Cream Ale with cumin and lime peel added aged in tequila barrels.

    I haven't tried that one so I can't comment on its quality.

    Edit-shand beat me to the punch

    How fresh did you have it? I really enjoyed it. I just quickly browsed the reviews and I have no idea why people think this beer would be good over a year later.

    I didn't necessarily expect it to be good or bad after a year. I had zero expectations. The only time I've ever had it, it was provided by a friend, and the bottle happened to be a year old. It's not something I'd seek out, fresh or otherwise.

    Zapata Bot was actually really good. I would love to see that as a rotating release.

    I'm really not a fan of the tequila barrel beers I've had. In nearly every case I've ended up thinking barrel aging hurt the base beer. Seems to be trending really hard right now, which worries me. Then again, maybe even everyone keeps trying them they might eventually end up working out.
